  • Visitor Information

Bar BattuThe Square Mile's Bar Battu claims to be the City's first natural wine bar and devotes its menu to natural, organically produced wines created using complicated biodynamic methods. A New York-style makeover gives the place a chrome-and-brick look, with some old French film posters adorning the walls and industrial lights hanging above the tables. Glasses of "seldom seen, well-chosen wines" (Time Out) start at £3.50 and bottles at £14, which isn't bad given the place's location between Bank and St Paul's (hence Bar Battu's closed doors over the weekends). The kitchen serves bistro-style mains and smaller plates (until 9pm), together with a simple bar menu that boasts a good range of charcuterie and cheese (3pm-5pm). It's very similar to the excellent Terroirs near The Strand, which, it has to be said, got in on the whole natural wine shebang two year's earlier.
